Dude, Where’s My Resort? (Episode 42)


There was a stabbing in Jerusalem, but don’t worry, it was only criminal. Yep, this is apparently life nowadays for host Molly Livingstone as she and host Alex Giles discuss the recent attack and why, if it’s not terrorism, it’s not scary – at least in the Middle East. And if modern day Israel wasn’t lame enough, listen in to find out how badass secret service agents of the Mossad set up a resort as a front in Sudan to rescue thousands of Ethiopian Jews. The hotel made beds by day, and once the tourists were tucked in at night, what may have seemed like a dream, was reality – undercover planes, and all – and all that on this week’s edition of The Mideast Beast Podcast.
